No problem, on the plus side either way I think you've narrowed it down to a great intermediate setup. So think of it as a decision between two hot chicks... Either way you're coming out ahead.

yeah im glad that i asked first on forum, otherwise i wouldnt know how to choose setup right. tbh i thought its a bit easier

but if you say volkl gonna be good choice, i think ill take it. then i can spend cash on some gear or maybe better boots

but still that sherlock with channel system looks fuckin sweet as well xD

I think that's a great plan (using the extra to buy great boots)...

I do really like the EST system though, it's nice to have essentially infinite adjustment. 4x4 systems work fine as long as you can get the bindings centred well on the board. Volkls seem to have lots of inserts so you shouldn't have a problem getting close to ideal stance width.

That said I agree with the other poster you've got to be able to try the boots on if at all possible. I went through three pairs of boots recently until I found the exact right fit for me. Turns out I've always been wearing boots a size too big.

I like Burton speedlaces, had them on my Serow's and have them on my current and former Driver X boots and I find them easy to use and adjust.

yeah thats just not possible, i hope ill just get that right boots.. they dont have my sizes near my place. anywhere

im wearing 30.5 cm boots so i will just get 31 cm snowboots and even if they will be a bit too big, its always better than too small. just have no choice, must order them

they dont have my size of imperials :/ damn, what do you think about rulers then?

so seems like building my setup is done (for today at least)

volkl dice + cartels 2013 + ambush/ruler

i like those imperials as well, and they are 7 in flex rating so it would fit perfect with bindings, too bad they dont have my size..
but i think any of those 3 will be good, just if they fit..

im not so deep in snowboard brands, thats why i decided to buy mostly burton stuff cause i know its always trustfull, but as i read '2012/2013 setup pics' thread, there is not so many people using burton boards/boots, why ? is there so many better brands or its about graphic or ? i thought that burton and libtech are leading in snowboard business, but seems like i have just typical nerdy knowledge about this

if you guys have any ideas about taking some other brand board for 300-400 euro, that could be better - go ahead

thats a lot of money for me which i will spend for equipment so i really need your help lads!
Here's the deal:
Years ago their were shit companies and shit product/decks. For the most part those companies have come and gone.

Pretty much all the major brands are solid these days.

This forum is pretty much going to answer every other board question - Proto, SL, evo, or heritage.

There ARE other brands.

If you want a Burton, get a burton.

Go ride your board and have a good time.

As an FYI, "supra" I believe has a sherlock.. PM him.

and price is good so i can spend cash for better boots

any experience with rulers guys?
